The Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan have met up for the first time since they almost went to war 2 years ago. They met on the sidelines of a South Asian summit which they were both attending.
Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Pakistani Prime Minister Zafarullah Khan Jamali met informally for approximately 15 minutes after the official ceremonial opening of the summit.
"We have to change South Asia’s image and standing in the world," said Vajpayee. While Jamali later hailed Vajpayee as a "poet" and a "visionary".
